Luscious Blue

I finally was able to break into my stash of new supplies like the Blueberry Crisp DSP to create this project; along with Patty Bennett's tutorial. I tweaked mine a bit and made the sides a little taller so that I could tie the ribbon through the handles. I think the next one I will make them even a little taller so that you can't see the envelopes.

The Blueberry DSP is gorgeous and coordinates with the Razzle Dazzle stamp set. Using the Big Shot, and the Top Note and Butterfly dies, made it quick and easy to decorate the front of the tote. And yes, the "for you" sentiment was intentionally stamped at a slant. :) The butterfly's body was made using the new self adhesive Rhinestones. They are fabulous and so easy to use!

Before adhering the inside pockets, I stenciled them using Folk Flowers stencils (retired) and Night of Navy ink.

The stencils were also used to create two of the cards in the group with Bashful Blue, Night of Navy and Basic Gray ink. The rhinestones added some bling to the cards as well.

The card on the left is a CASE of this card and the middle card is my version on one of the convention make and takes, the other two are my design. All this luscious blue is making me hungry for a yummy blueberry dessert. Blueberry Cobbler sounds good, doesn't it?

Have a great day!

Great project! I love the colors and love the cards! I have this paper too and haven't cut into mine yet, so this may be my motivation to cut it up :D
